Museum of Lenny Prince, Muffler Artist

Field review by the editors.

Staten Island, New York

Lenny Prince was born in Guyana and as a child would make toys for himself out of other people's junk. That training carried over into his adulthood in America, where he has filled a small gallery next to his muffler shop with over 80 sculptures -- knights, Transformers, giant bugs, a Space Shuttle, Michael Jackson, Barack Obama -- made mostly of recycled car parts. Many of them are wired to light up and move; some even have built-in TVs.
